Abstract—Sri Lanka is facing urbanization with the impact of globalization, which has results in an increase of needs and wants of people and increasing living standards of people tremendously. Urbanization directly contributes to waste generation, and unscientific waste handling causes health hazards and urban environment degradation. The failure to address this escalating problem in a timely manner resulted in unsanitary eye sores and the degradation of wetlands, coastline, rivers and other streams which become dumping sites for plastic polythene and other mixed waste.

Index Terms—Eco-points, RFID, smart dustbin, waste categorizing.
